On his way, he meets the pioneering medic Harold Gillies, who saves his life and his sanity. And who is the…

The most famous conversion in history - when Saul became Paul on the road to Damascus - was a trick. It was actually Jesus appearing to him. Jesus did not die on the cross but was rescued and sheltered by his brother James, by Peter and by Peter's wife, Mary Magdalene.

Now imprisoned by Nero, Peter finally tells Paul the truth before they go to their deaths as the first Christian Martyrs.

'An exciting play that explores big issues'- Guardian
